This webinar aims to explore the challenges in automotive manufacturing and the 3D metrology solutions available to tackle some of these challenges in the pre-production process.
Join us in this webinar to learn about the ease and simplicity of FARO products and solutions in creating efficiencies in the automotive pre-production process.
Automotive production is one of the most common yet complex tasks in the manufacturing world today as it requires the development, production and integration of thousands of different components.
Hence, developing, manufacturing and ensuring accurate and reliable components or sub-assemblies is a constant challenge in the automotive industry since all such parts are produced separately and then brought together to be assembled to each other and to the chassis of the automobile.
The pre-production phase in the automotive development and manufacturing process is an important phase in the whole process as it begins right after the design & development stage and is the stage of launch preparation and readiness for automotive production.
Today, the utilization of portable 3D metrology solutions has superseded traditional methods of measurement and inspection as automotive manufacturers have begun to recognize the benefits of such solutions within their development and manufacturing process.
FARO’s range of portable 3D metrology solutions can be applied in the pre-production phase in automotive manufacturing for inspections such as First Article Inspection, Tool & Jig Inspection and Body-In-White Inspection to increase productivity and reduce cycle time.
